    How will I study?

    The delivery mode of our course is face-to-face classes on the Parkville campus, plus supported teacher placement in primary, secondary or adult education environments. The classes on campus are held in the evenings and on the weekends. The English as an additional language teaching specialisation also requires 22 days of supervised placement at a school or similar setting during school hours.

    Victorian Institute of Teaching accreditation

    Successful completion of a major in English language is a requirement for TESOL teacher accreditation in Victoria. Students who are eligible for Victorian Institute of Teaching registration but seek additional recognition as an accredited language teacher, must complete the English as an Additional Language Teaching specialisation. This includes four specialist core subjects, two research capstones, two electives, and 22 days of placement at a school or similar setting.
